Do they moult?  heavy
Do they make good guard dogs?  no
Do they make good watch dogs?  ok
Are they readily obedient?  can learn
Can you trust them off the lead?  caution advised
Are they reliable left on their own?  no
Will they get on with other animals?  yes if raised with them
Are they suitable for children?  yes
Mental stimulation requirements  high


i dunno exactly but this doesnt seem right to me you know ?

Q2 - i wouldnt have thought they moulted heavily assuming they are well kept?
Q3&4 - you sure know when someone is coming in the gate at Vals . . .
Q5 - what!!!!  they're blindingly obedient in the right hands
Q6 - erm.... they're bred for working off lead hellooooooo ????
Q7 - again ... job *cough* ....
Q8 - in what way "suitable" - good owners with good kids have good dog experiences :P
Q9 - high mental stimulation ????  beardies ?????  in relation to a stone maybe yes :D

perhaps these interesting qualities are more related to the yak type beardies seen below:
